Tax Preparation

Each year at income tax time eligible clients are able to have their federal and state income tax returns completed as part of the Earn It! Keep It! Save It! program. The program works in conjunction with the Internal Revenue Service and the United Way of the Bay Area.

Volunteers are trained to assist families with household incomes below $53,000. This includes helping taxpayers claim the Earned Income Credit which could amount to as much $4,000 per family.

All services are provided at no charge to our clients.

Coastside Hope VITA volunteers prepared 386 tax returns in Spring 2017 (tax year 2016). Over $525,000 was refunded to local residents whose average income was $26,133.

In the twelve years that this program has been in place, we have prepared over 3,500 returns.
